Facebook to Hit a Billion Users in the Summer

Jan. 11, 2012 | by Gregory Lyons

Last summer we took a look at Facebook usage around the world, and with Facebook recently announcing that they’re currently at over 800 million active users we thought it would be interesting to extrapolate their current grown rate and estimate when they’re likely to hit a billion active users.

Facebook billion users

Using a process of linear regression on the data from the end of 2008 onwards we expect Facebook to hit a billion active users around August 2012. Looking at the data from 2006-mid 2008 it looks like Facebook was growing at an exponential rate, however more recent data suggests it’s growing in a linear fashion.

Facebook’s growth has slowed or stopped in many of its early adopting countries such as the US and the UK. However, developing countries such as India and Brazil have shown strong growth with India growing from 22 million users to 36 million and Brazil going from 13 million to 30 million in the last 9 months. Both are large countries with millions of potential users who have yet to sign up to Facebook, with only 3% of India’s population on Facebook and 16% of Brazil’s (compared to 49% of America’s population or 47% of the UK’s population) countries such as these will clearly contribute heavily to Facebook’s continued growth.

In quel mese, infatti, gli utenti attivi su Facebook potrebbero corrispondere a un circa un cittadino su 7 presente sulla Terra. Le previsioni appena pubblicate riguardanti Facebook seguono quindi di pochi giorni quelle effettuate su un altro degli “astri nascenti” nel campo dei social network, ossia Google+.

      Hi Joe

      Thanks for you comment. Facebook defines an active user as "a user who has visited the website in the last 30 days". They also state that "More than 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day" which suggests that their quoted user numbers are most likely actual people and not simply ghost accounts. As for spammers, you'd hope Facebook deletes these accounts as soon as they're reported as spam and therefore does not count them as part of their user numbers, although I'm sure you're right and there some people with more than one account.Jan 13, 2012 04:58 pm

      Do you honestly think that there are that many users? What about ghost accounts people use so they can have more friends - which is crucial in "ville" games and such. And what about spammers, losers who want friends, and the millions of accounts with hot girls on it, asking you to be friends with them?

    • 数字营销公司iCrossing预测:Facebook用户数将在2012年8月跨过10亿大关 | 36氪

      [...] 浏览 →首页快报创业公司信息图评论推荐36氪开放日 /*0){$('#t_sina_btn').html('');$('#author_weibo').html('');$('#weibo_cmtbox').html('');}});/*]]>*/ 发表评论数字营销公司iCrossing预测:Facebook用户数将在2012年8月跨过10亿大关数字营销公司iCrossing预测:Facebook的用户数将在2012年8月跨过10亿大关。这是基于Facebook近来的表现所作出的预测。Facebook在西方市场(如美国)的用户增长速度放缓(在上网用户中已接近饱和),而发展中市场的用户数量增长迅速,缓解了疲态,推动着总用户数向10亿大关逼近。iCrossing进一步解释:印度和巴西等发展中国家表现抢眼,在过去的9个月中,印度的用户数从2200万迅速增至3600万,巴西表现更加优异,从1300万飙升至3000万。这两个大国都有数以百万计的尚未注册Facebook的潜在用户,目前印度人口的3%和巴西人口的16%注册了Facebook(而美国人口的49%和英国人口的47%都注册了Facebook),因而像这类人口大国将会对Facebook的持续增长作出巨大贡献。目前巴西和印度等新兴市场的互联网普及率并不高,因而这个社交网站未来在这些地方仍大有可为。手机和互联网设备的普及,为用户访问Facebook提供了更多的选择,这使得手机在其中扮演了重要的角色。via TNW [...]Jan 12, 2012 07:33 am
